New DARK SHADOWS Still Features Johnny Depp & Eva Green
Check out the brand new image of Johnny Depp sharing some screen time with the always gorgeous Eva Green. Also, screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith verifies that the film will be PG-13.
"It was a dream to work with Tim Burton. He made my character, Angelique Bouchard, a real human being. She's funny and witty with a black sense of humor. The movie takes place in the 17th century. I wear a corset and have blonde hair." - Eva Green (Luckymag.com)

In a recent interview with Bad Ass Digest Screenwriter, Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter) talks about the tone of Tim Burton's Dark Shadows.
"The tone of the movie is soap operatic. It's heightened. Everything is heightened and grand. Johnny is just dug in and big. [Starts hamming it up] 'Didn't you see? How... could you? My god, woman!'"
And what about that zany dark humor that Tim Burton is best known for, can we expect more of that in this film adaptation of the popular 1960's soap opera?
"There's an absurdist element to it. It's very funny. I don't think people are expecting it to be as funny as it is."
For the big reveal, the film will have more of a classic vampire feel to it than let's say "Twilight," but it won't be filled with too many frights.
"It's PG-13, so there's not gore, there are no hardcore scares, but there's some crazy Barnabas vampire shit in this movie that will surprise people in terms of its ferocity."
Thank you for the heads up Rowsdower.
